Metro Police say the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force this afternoon arrested Walter E. Moss II, 30, in Springfield, Tennessee, on an outstanding Robertson County drug charge and for Saturday’s ATV assault on Sergeant John Bourque on Broadway in downtown Nashville.
Arrest warrants have been issued charging Moss with six offenses: aggravated assault on a police officer (felony), reckless endangerment (felony), evading arrest (felony), leaving the scene of a personal injury collision (misdemeanor), reckless driving (misdemeanor), and driving on a revoked license (misdemeanor).
Central Precinct detectives had worked diligently since Saturday to identify the ATV driver who collided with Bourque and dragged him into a steel bike rack. More than 50 Crime Stoppers tips were received from citizens who wanted to help advance the investigation. Moss is accused of being one of the dozens of ATV and dirt bike riders who illegally and without warning took over Broadway Saturday afternoon during the SEC Basketball Tournament at Bridgestone Arena.
